Merry Poppins, I Presume? by David McMahon

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This performer at Sydney’s Luna Park was having so much fun that I couldn’t resist a shot while she posed with other visitors to the park.

The costume really stood out on a dull, cloud evening and if you want to see an unusual view of it, check out another shot in my Red Bubble series, called Bum, Does My Mum Look Big In This?, which was taken a few seconds later.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F6.7, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 98mm.
